    Hi, I just bought this theme, so far I really like it. I’m having some issues with a few things, maybe you can help me.

    1. How do you change the size of the slideshow title & caption (the ones that slide in)?

    2. How do change the font for slideshow title & caption?

    3. I’ve made a child theme – when I update the parent theme, will all CSS in the Quick CSS box be wiped out? Should I start putting this in a custom.css file located in the child theme folder?

    4. How do I change the width of the slideshow button? I just want 1 button but it’s stretched very wide.

    5. How do I remove the white space under the slideshow?

    6. I can’t seem to get rid of breadcrumbs. I want the title of my page in the header but don’t want the breadcrumbs. Or I want the header image but don’t want title OR breadcrumbs (title should be down in the content area).




    In answering your questions, I answered them for the monitor size of display. Please dont forget that this theme is responsive, and have multiple media queries inside (shrink your browser window and you will see the theme changing to fit into the window) .. so the font sizes, button sizes all change depending on the browser size. Please refrain from using pixels as much as possible and instead use either % or for fonts use em (instead of 15px use 1.34em)

    1) Slideshow caption title css is below.

    #top .caption_supersize .slideshow_caption h1 {
    font-size: 60px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    line-height: 1em;

    the code for the slideshow caption text

    #top .caption_supersize .slideshow_caption .featured_caption {
    font-size: 15px;
    line-height: 1.3em;


    The font css propety is below. just change it to whatever font you want and place it in the css above.

    font-family: helvetica neue;

    3) Good question. I just ran a test, and the answer is Both. The Quick CSS does *not* get deleted but it does *not* carry over from parent to child. So you can go back into parent and find one set of Quick/css and another set you can create for child. The benefit here is that you can have multiple child themes each with their own quick css so that you can compare what you like better

    A child theme does not have custom.css file. You should add all custom css in the child theme style.css file so that it has a purpose other then the @import statement. You can of course create a custom.css file but that will just add an additional file to the load time and has no benefit whatsoever.


    #top .caption_supersize .caption-slideshow-button {
    max-width: 150px;
    #top .caption-slideshow-button {
    width: 42%;

    5) I can’t answer that since I don’t see it. If you show a url I can answer. There is none on the demo unless you mean that little biddy space above the Plans and Pricing Button

    6) This CSS will remove breadcrumbs

    .title_container .breadcrumb {
    display: none;
